Drama Teachers and Theatre Directors

From the foks that brought you Real-World Theatre Education

"Whether an educator is just beginning or needs a refresher course, this book is a valuable asset, providing an overview of safety protocols, equipment, systems, lesson plans and insightful tips. With the practical (and often humorous) voice of experience, Rome helps theatre educators plan and prepare technical theatre projects, and avoid crucial errors. I wish this had been available when I first started teaching!"                                                - Zoe Dillard, Real-World Theatre Education

What classes is Teaching Tech You Never Learned designed for?
 

Teaching Tech is designed for adding tech into a Theatre Arts 1 class. The program is incredibly open-ended and full of opportunities to adjust the level of activities to meet the needs of your specific class.
 

Saddled with a combined Acting-Tech class? The book has a curriculum for handling that, too.
 

There are also sections for a regular Tech Theatre class and for enhancing your theatre productions as well.

What is Teaching Tech... ?
 

It’s a curriculum workbook built on simple, engaging, and activity-based learning. Each unit includes basic background information, terms, projects and a grading rubric, so it’s a 100+ page workbook with a full year of activities.  
 

Plus, you can teach these weekly, in a semester or all year-long. Got actors and techies mixed together? There's a plan included for just such a combo curriculum. And for a regular tech class, there are advanced projects, too.  Finally, you'll get valuable information for enhancing your theatre productions as well.
 

Here’s a look at the skills your students will be able to work with:
 

Theatre Arts is so much more than just learning acting and theatre history. It’s about building "context" knowledge of key skills and information that will help round out your students' knowledge of what it takes to make theatre. These topics introduce your students to so many important and new skills and concepts, ones they may not have had exposure to yet. You may have future IATSE members right under your nose!
